@boxer12 thanks for the recommendation. I plan to get a copy of “I’m Wide Awake it’s Morning” on vinyl and try it out.
I read a review on the Bryston 28Bsst3 1,000 watt mono amps and it mentioned how those amps make rock music sound great. I have enjoyed listening to all kinds of recordings on my system and often ones that are fatiguing on my old NAD 2200 amp/cheap Sony D5 discman system are more listenable on my Bryston/Thiel system. The bad recordings often sound “small” in my listening room and turning it up louder hurts my ears. I guess this is the compression that the recording engineers apply to average out the signal to noise for listening in noisy environments like car stereos.
